Cruel and Barbarous Treatment

by McCarthy, Mary

Okay, for those who found the new audio setup too sophisticated (and I agree, to an extent; this is proudly a lowest-of-the-no fi podcast experience, but everyone needs to be heard, you know), a compromise: I adjusted the sound software, I -think- to pick up more room noise, to let it breathe. Breathing, in podcasts, is important.

Also, I went and caught a bit of a seasonal headcold, just for this podcast, just so that it might sound more authentic. And because of the natural temperament of Podcastresses with Headcolds, you might note that the dog became possessed for an instant, that I forgot to turn the phone off, that I stammer more than I otherwise might have, maybe even (it could be a fevered delusional memory) live commentary on what I was reading… and that I don’t have the mettle to edit it at all.

Keep writing and I’ll keep tweaking. Miette can satisfy all the people all the time, it’s true.

    ps: it’s longish. Make yourself a nice cup of tea first.
